The Kajol-Arjun Rampal-Kareena Kapoor starrer We Are Family is readying for its release during Eid in September which means that publicity king Karan Johar has already started preparing for the film’s promotions. However, there is a small glitch – Kajol, who is expecting her second child, will not be able to take part in the extensive promotional campaign of the movie.
Which is why Kareena has taken upon herself to promote the movie-in her absence- and she has already allotted a chunk of her dates for the same. The campaign, which will consist of many city tours and other activities, will be kick started soon. Siddharth Malhotra, who is directing this Stepmom remake, said, “The film is definitely releasing on Eid. It is everybody’s film and the entire cast will be available whenever they can. But it would be too much if we expect Kajol to travel everywhere”.
However, following reports of Kareena’s active participation in the movie’s promotion, Kajol has decided not to be left behind. Since she will not be available in September, Kajol has decided to pre-record as many interviews as possible which will be used later. Also she will be making an appearance with Kareena and Manish Malhotra on Koffee With Karan’s special episode. Says Karan, “Kajol, Kareena and I had a ball doing the stuff for We are Family. We were all very careful about Kajol’s condition. Kajol too was very careful about what she could and couldn’t do. To expect her to plunge into the film’s publicity just before its release would’ve been impractical and unreal. September 10 – when the film releases – is too close to her delivery day.”
But being the sport and professional that she is, Kajol seems to have decided to do as much as possible for movie from her side!
